Emerald Ash Borer Quarantine

Published: 10/04/2016

The state of New Hampshire recently confirmed that the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB), an invasive insect from Asia that has killed millions of ash trees nationwide, has been found in Manchester, joining a growing list of New Hampshire towns.  In an effort to slow the spread of this insect, the state has issued a quarantine on the movement of all ash materials, as well as all hardwood firewood and wood chips, coming out of and through Hillsborough, Rockingham, Belknap, and Merrimack counties.  The Merrimack county quarantine has been in effect since 2013. 


Please visit for specific quarantine details.  This website also contains information concerning many aspects of EAB, including how to identify it and what options you have to protect your ash trees..

To report evidence of EAB, please call either:
